Charles Stuart 2017 ISB Champion.
Looking to mix with the best at this weekends Sunflower Trophy races will be recently crowned Irish Champions, Charles Stuart and Jason Lynn.
For Ballycastle rider, Charles Stuart, his short tarmac career has seen him clinch three Irish Championships in as many years.
The former off road rider began short circuit racing in 2015 in the Formula One Class, taking the championship in his rookie year, last year Stuart changed to Suzuki machinery and went on to win the ISB Cup championship, and for the 2017 season, Thanks to the generous support of Parker Transport, a new R1 Yamaha was sourced, and despite tyre woes earlier in the season, Stuart clinched the Irish Superbike championship last weekend at St Angeleo.
Looking ahead to the Sunflower Trophy races, the quietly spoken Stuart had this to say “ The Sunflower Trophy race meeting is the Big One, the end of season race where everyone looks forward to getting a good result, my sponsor, ,Gerry (Parker) whom Im indebted to , was hoping to have something more competitive sorted for this event, but it was a race against time, so I will just stick to what I have, and who knows, if its a bit damp, it might play into our hands.
